This is the story of one year in the life of a family physician in Belfast, Maine, and his connections not just to that community but to the human family. In thoughtful, elegiac, often lyrical prose, David Loxterkamp muses about his patients, his colleagues, his family, and his relationship with his Maker as he recalls the daily minutiae that constitute "the bookmarks in a bountiful life, a string of facts and circumstances that have moved beyond the mere documentary" to his discovery of "peace and perspective and companionship along my muddled way."A wonderful book you'll enjoy.
